Hi all!! Looking forward to meeting you next year. So, though we still have lots of time....What are everyones early plans for getting to Rishikesh? I'm thinking of flying to Haridwar, actually!

Hi Diane

You can't get any flights directly there from London. Are you flying from JFK? I'm not sure if it is actually easier to just drive from Delhi? Looking forward to meeting you too. When you planning on booking your flight? I went to Kereala last year and booked my ticket for £580, in Jan it went down to £450

Hi Heather!

I'm thinking of taking the non stop Air India flight from JFK. Took it once before and it was fine (a lot easier then transferring in Dubai which is what I did last year!). I'll probably book my flight some time this summer. I keep watching hoping fares will come down. (it's about $1300 round trip at the moment) How about you?  My husband and I are actually thinking of going to Kerala after the course is over! Will have to pick your brain on must sees and do's. :-) The reason I'm thinking of flying to Haridwar is because I keep reading accounts of the road trip taking 6-8 hours from Delhi. There is still lots of time to figure it out though!

Yeah that drive after a long flight will be rough. Haridwar sounds like a better option for you. I think I'm going to book my flight in January and see if I can get a better deal. It's about £650 at the moment. Well I was only in Kerala for 12 days and I was on a yoga retreat so I didn't travel around. but the town I was in was called Vaarkala and it was really beautiful with lovely people. I love New York by the way, my fav city. Would love to live there some day. I was there a few weeks ago. How is your yoga? You past beginners level? X

Hi Heather and Diane!

I'm really excited about this! It's crazy--just talked to my friend today who is moving to India (somewhere also in Uttarakhand) for a year starting in August. Crazy, crazy universe.

When are you guys going to start worrying about applying for a visa?

Comment by Heather Charlotte on June 10, 2013 at 1:28pm

Hey Jane

There is no need to worry! Lol. I got my visa last year in around 5 days. You just fill in an online form, then you drop your passport at the visa office with a picture and you can go back and collect it a few days after. I think its fine to wait till December/January. 

We are all really excited even though its 8 months away but time flies! It will be Christmas before we know it! ;)

Hi Jane, Heather and Diane!!

I am super excited to travel to Rishikesh for Feb 2014 yoga TTC - "capital of yoga"! And, I'm also excited to meet you guys and the rest of the class. From all the reviews, I expect this will be a life transforming experience :) I haven't planned travel or visa stuff but will let you guys know when I book. I think we can arrive one day before the program starts, right?

Hi Charity!

Two days before are complimentary, I believe. Super stoked. :-)

Comment by Diane Terrusa on June 11, 2013 at 6:44am

Hi Jane and Charity!

Charlotte: London is one of my favorite cities! I love England...Such a beautiful country and fantastic people! As far as my yoga practice, I'm advanced when it comes to asanas and a huge beginner when it comes to meditation! I truly suck at it, LOL!! What about you?

Jane: Will you be sending your passport to the NY Visa Center? I live 4 blocks away (seriously) and they're great! Very professional and they do same day visa's if you drop your passport before 10am. Good stuff! 

Charity: I'm going to get to Rishikesh on Saturday before the course starts. I Wanna have time to get to know my surroundings before diving in! 

Are you ladies planning on spending any time in Delhi before heading up north? I'm going to arrive on the 29th so I have a chance to get rid of my jet lag. The day/night shift is brutal!

Hi everyone! I have been planning to go to Rishikesh for over a year now, and I will finally have a "gap year" in my life starting this September. I live in Japan right now but will be traveling around a bit before I make it to Rishikesh for the 500 hour course. Anyone else doing the 500 hour course?

Anyways, I look forward to this great opportunity!
